A fully mature and delectable Rum from Venezuela that raises aging and wood selection to an art form.

The Licorerías Unidas S.A Distillery was founded in 1959 deep in the heart of Venezuela in partnership with Seagrams. The partnership was very successful, supporting Rum production in the Seagrams portfolio for decades. During the acquisition binge of the 1990s, Seagrams was largely acquired by industry giant Diageo who already had a large production capacity. Seeing an opportunity, local management and entrepreneurs bought the distillery and the Diplomatico brand from Diageo in 2002, renaming it Distilería Unidos. Today they produce a wide array of quality Spirits under family ownership.

Diplomatico 2005 Single Vintage Rum is special. The Spirit was distilled in 2005 — every drop in this edition comes from that same vintage. It’s aged for twelve full years in a combination of Bourbon and Single Malt casks. But that’s not enough, because it’s then finished in Oloroso Sherry casks and bottled at 43% ABV. Those specs alone are enough to get the average Rum drinker’s attention. And when we’ve surveyed the reviews and ratings on this lovely Venezuelan dram we have found nothing but universal acclaim. All we can say is that your taste buds will thank us.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’

Ashley,
As close to perfection as a rum can get. Soft, notes of caramel and a smooth sherry after taste from the Pedro Ximénez cask .
